Phil Jones put in a good performance at right back in United’s 1-0 win over Everton today. The young defender claims that getting the win shows the character of the club after last weekend’s horrible result.
“Everyone showed today what Manchester United are about,” Jones told MUTV. “It was a bad day at the office last week but we’ve shown fantastic team spirit in training, got our heads up and picked ourselves up quickly. This is a massive win for us today and we’re delighted in the changing room. It was tough and we expected it from Everton because of previous years of coming here. It was mad [at the end] and we had to defend it but we did that and, thankfully, got the three points. It’s very nice as a defender [to get a clean sheet]. Defensively as a unit, I thought 11 players defended and not just four. 11 players defended terrifically well. They were throwing the kitchen sink at us today and I thought we stood strong as a unit and held together.”
